This is a project I was working on. It is very hard to photograph because the container produces too much glare. I call it steampunk in a container.

It's inspired by the idea that the world had progressed into what we know know but those who decided not progress with times were forced into a world of their own. They survive by scavenging for scraps of metal and anything that could be useful in rebuilding the world as they know it, without micro chips and super computers.

A few pictures of the container itself:






And these are some clearer pictures of the figures inside:

Gnome dude
Front

Back


Carriage





Flower/Mushroom (started out as a mushroom but kinda looks more like a flower)



Thank you for taking the time to look.

All feedback is very welcome!

The big picture may be amazing but it's the little details that inspire.

Very cool premise! You could totally start a comic book on this....you know, for starters and see where it goes, very cool!

Haha, I have some ideas floating around in my skull but I don't think I'd be able to pull off a comic book. Thanks for the kind words Smiley

OMG...These are so awesome - Flower Mushroom is my favourite! I love the way the carriage turned out - very balanced <3 Your gnomie is slightly creepy, was this intended? (or maybe gnomes are just intuitively creepy...who knows)

Love it!!!!!  Great stuff inside, and I like good dioramas anyway with or without a story.

(Re photographing shiny items without glare, there are various things you could try.  For quick-and-dirty I used to hold an open black umbrella over my shoulder as I took the shot.  Even a quick kludged-together light box setup could work fine too.  There's more info on this page at my site:

...click on "Light Boxes"
...look for glare under "Gen. Info Re Photography")

That is brilliant. Have any ideas for other steampunk/mini-scenes in a jar?
